COVID-19 in Radiation Oncology
I work with oncology patients, who are one of the highest risk populations for contracting this (others being elderly, immunocompromised, etc.). Radiation oncology patients undergo daily treatment and if someone is suspected of having COVID-19, their treatment can be halted or delayed, affecting their cancer outcome.
Serving on the RMP Steering and Pandemic Planning Committee in conjunction with Cancer Care Ontario has given me an opportunity to bring a true multidisciplinary approach to this rapidly evolving situation. We are being vigilant with screening to keep PMH COVID-free.
